Communication

Little Voices is the Oral Language strand of the ABC Start Right Limerick project. Little Voices is for all young children and their families in the Northside and City Centre communities of Limerick. Little Voices has two language teachers who work with parents, families and staff to develop young children’s speech, language and communication skills. We run groups, giving practical tips and ideas on how to help develop children’s language and help them learn to talk. Little Voices works in baby & toddler groups, crèches, preschools, junior infant classes and health centres in the ABC Start Right areas.
